Jeremy Brogan thought being a night watchman at a hospital would be easy, wandering long, dark, empty halls late at night. It might even get kind of boring, after a while…Except Jeremy is working at St. Michael’s; the most haunted hospital in the country.

It’s a good thing Jeremy doesn’t believe in ghosts. Everything he sees and hears must have some kind of explanation, right?

That he had to patrol the fifth floor was bad enough, but never in his wildest dreams did Jeremy think he would end up in the basement. Now all he wants is out…only the hospital, and its inhabitants, have other plans.

Book Trailer for The Fifth Floor





Imagine taking a job and it's not quite what you expected, and neither are you?

Well, that's happened in this book.

When Jeremy Brogan takes a job as a hospital security guard,  it did not turn out the way he expected. See, at the fifty-plus years-old St. Michael's Hospital, things happen. As with every novel by E.H. James, this tale teaches a lesson under the guise of a paranormal tale.

Just know they can’t hurt you..unless they want to. (Kindle location 75)



On the surface, it tells us about Jeremy and his ghostly encounter. But, underneath an eerie plot line, James hides two gems -- (1) who you think you are is not always who you ARE and (2) what you think you perceive, is not always what the mind believes it sees or senses.

Arghh….this book begs for metaphysical insight.

Our everyday life centers on change and persistence. However, most do not realize that life exists beyond these two things. What constitutes our ultimate reality lies beneath our noumenal world. While reading The Fifth Floor, I saw this!

Why a metaphysical perspective?

Metaphysics, in layman’s terms, seeks to answer questions about what is here in this life and what is it like. Yet, it also tunnels beneath these two questions and ask an even bigger one -- what can be learned from the intersection of the two aforementioned questions.

The Fifth Floor can be seen as a tale of one man's understanding of "being", allowing the reader to question what really exists in his/her own life.

Now, this  story isn't going to scare you or give you chills.  But, it will give you that "omg-sitting up straight" feeling.
